Butler assistant heading south

March 25, 2013

Matthew Graves, a coach for the Butler University men's basketball team for more than a decade, is leaving the program to become head coach at the University of South Alabama, sources say. Graves, a former Butler player, was an assistant coach for nine years before being named associate head coach in 2010. South Alabama went 17-13 this season and finished second in the Sun Belt Conference. Its coach, Ronnie Arrow, retired earlier this season.
